As part of its activities, PILAC also runs a moot program which offers students with an opportunity to argue real cases and apply legal norms studied in class to practical overarching legal issues.
Beyond this, the moot program also helps build and strengthen networks of young lawyers committed to litigation of public interest and human rights issues before national, regional and international courts. Every year, an internal moot court competition is held at the school of law with teams of two (2) competing against each other. From this, the best teams are selected to represent the School and the University at different competitions at national, regional and international level.
Among the different moots that the School of Law has participated in over the years is the All Africa Human Rights Moot Court Competition which Makerere University has won thrice; the East Africa Child Rights Moot held for the first time in 2011 where the Makerere team had the overall best Memorial; the International Humanitarian Law Moot Competition organized by ICRC; and the Eastern Africa Human Rights Moot in Rwanda.
